Courtney, Barns - 99 Lyrics

Heart strung young and dumb yeah we had no fear
Way back when we said we'd both be millionaires
Now those days are over
And we are all ghosts

We used to sleep all day, talk all night, stay up by the TV light, oh oh
But when your baby teeth ain't milky white, wipe the star dust from your eyes, oh oh

I said a come on love we'll be just fine, we're gunna live just like it's 1999

In 1990
In 1999
In 1990
In 1999

Back then we were trading cards behind the swings
Oh no now it's money gold and diamond rings
Now those days are over and we are all ghosts

We used to sleep all day, talk all night, stay up by the TV light, oh oh
But when your baby teeth ain't milky white, wipe the star dust from your eyes, oh oh

I said a come on love we'll be just fine, we're gunna live just like it's 1999

In 1990
In 1999
In 1990
In 1999

Oh, oh no, where does it go
Well whatever fill your body up with chemicals
Oh, oh no, Kaleidoscopes
Well whatever living better in, oh oh

In 1990
In 1999
In 1990
In 1999

Sega's my Ferrari
I got it, I love it, I I
In 1990
Got Sony Electronics
Voodoo economics
I got it, I love it, I I
In 1999

    I was 19 in 1999 and those were the best years of my life.

  2. Apsimosis Cutknife

    I liked this song so much until I saw the music video. This has never happened before

  3. ex tothenetwork

    Rock and roll awesome lyrics. I like the idea of rock music that heals me, and destroys negativity at the same time. The words are sometimes just affirmations.

    Kasumi Rina Gaming

    Well, nobody cared for SEGA or Nintendo in 1999, and Atari was a thing our parents played when they were young.

    I love this song so much, Barns Courtney has something special, his voice is so unique. I wont lie i thought kings of leon came out with a new song lol...

  61. Adam Louie Cardwell

    My 12 year old son turned me unto him. He said, “dad you need listen to this guy. His music is EPIC.”

    Common ground with my son is awesome and so is Barnes’ music.

  62. Paul Luc LeBlanc

    This is an amazing song. Love it. The background music starting at 0:46, is that an Irish folk tune? Sounds like it.

  63. trippy nita

    literally love this w all my heart

  64. N C

    When I first heard this, I thought it was a the 1975 song. He sounds a lot like Matty Healy, here.

  96. Depp99ful

    I’ve been a fan of him for a while - it’s nice to hear him getting radio play.

    The trading card thing, for me, was 1995/96; however, the rest I relate to. I, too, wish I was a teen again in 1999 - before SJWs were acknowledged.

  97. kirk cavenaugh

    How is this not kings of Leon???
